Corona: BayWa continues to fulfil its supply function

Risk minimization has top priority

BayWa AG intends to protect both its own employees and its customers with further measures to prevent infection. At the same time, BayWa AG will fulfil its important supply function in the agricultural, building materials and energy sectors. Provided that there are no official requirements to the contrary, all BayWa operations at its German locations will remain open. A general ban on visiting the Group's headquarters in Munich applies. Moreover, every employee whose function allows this will be mobile from now on. This measure is primarily intended to make it easier for parents to look after their children.

"The most important goal must be to minimize the risk of infection for our employees and for people in their environment as far as possible. At the same time, we must fulfil our care function in the best possible way, especially in rural areas. We stand by this responsibility and therefore act decisively", says Klaus Josef Lutz, Chairman of the Board of Management of BayWa AG. Already in February, a crisis management team was set up at BayWa AG in order to be able to respond to current developments as quickly as possible.
